My usual method of ensuring that images which I create can be traced to me, is to publish them first in a blog that I control. Welcome to these images, which are now in my Wizzley article, "Air, Table Salt and Water in a Home Experiment about Mars".

The article deals with a simple home science experiment based on a recent news item.

This post includes two other regular features. First, my main article is also promoted in DeHaan Services ("A Home Lab Experiment with Table Salt and Water") and in my Xanga blog ("Is Your Table Salt Getting Enough Moisture?"). They are noted here simply to give the search engines a reason to cross-reference the sites.

Second, this blog includes a writing tip.

Writing Tip

Although I had planned to publish the article in Decoded Science, it is now in my Wizzley compendium instead. The reason is that Decoded Science's approach is to have authors write about their primary areas of expertise. This lab experiment article does not deal with math or computers; I'm simply an amateur science geek.

This was not a surprise; I'd been in touch with the editor and knew it was a risk. In fact, I alerted her to it again when submitting the "Lab" article.

But as a writer, I did not want to waste the effort I had put into this article. Luckily my Wizzley account, so far, deserves the label "miscellaneous".

The writing tip is: know the market, write for the market, and have a back-up market just in case.

Seven Salty Images

Here is the first image, showing the equipment used in the simple salt experiment.

"Start with This Much Salt" by Mike DeHaan.
This is the amount of salt I placed into the bowl.

"Start with Dry Salt in Bowl" image by Mike DeHaan
The container has water and a bowl with that tiny amount of dry salt.

"Ending with Salt Equipment" image by Mike DeHaan
By the end of the experiment, we have three pieces of equipment.

"Ending with Wet Salt in the Bowl" image by Mike DeHaan
The salt is quite wet at the end of the experiment.

"Ending with Measured Water" image by Mike DeHaan
The amount of water from the container at the end of the salt experiment is very nearly the same as the amount at the start.

"Ending with Wet Salt on a Stick" image by Mike DeHaan
The salt looks wet and clumpy on the stick. I think it's a better visual than the wet salt in the bowl.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
